Based on the assumption of variable-investment, this paper introduces growth opportunity into the model of liquidity needs (Tirole, 2006). Through the establishment of mathematical optimization model, we analyse the influence of growth opportunities on liquidity needs and liquidity investment decisions. Both of mathematical derivation and numerical simulation show that, the entrepreneur tends to overinvest in illiquid assets if the growth opportunity is small; otherwise, he will overhoard of liquid assets. In addition, the agency costs due to information asymmetry may also affect the entrepreneur's decisions of liquid assets investment.
